Q&A – Why do I never hear about the Adventist churches in my town?

Church, Ancient, Landscape, Architecture, Old, History

I received this message out of the blue from someone in another state I haven’t heard from in years…

Question: Hi Dan, I have a question. I don’t attend the Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) church where I am, but there is a Spanish SDA church in town and also an English speaking SDA Church in town. We never hear about anything they are doing. We hear nothing at all. This is true of other towns as well. So that’s my question… why not? What do you think?

What would you say?

Here’s how I responded.

Answer: Hi D————, great to hear from you. It’s been a while. You’re asking some very important questions. I believe the Lord wants every church to be on fire and bold in serving others and sharing Jesus with their communities. The devil would like to get them distracted with a thousand other things. Why don’t you go visit the English church and the Spanish church and share with them what you just asked me and ask them the same questions? I would love to hear the responses you get from members and church leaders. And perhaps God is calling you to go and make a difference too. What do you think?
